I’ve been working for months with Wanda.
“When someone asks you what you’re being for Halloween, what will you say?”
“Um… I forget.”
“You say, ‘I’m Judy Haines.’ Okay, now you try it.”
“I’m Judy Haines… Wait. What am I again?”
So she’s Judy and Laylee is Betty, the mother hen. Dan is Bing Crosby or Bob Wallace due to his buttery voice and smallish hair. Magoo is Danny Kaye aka Phil Davis due to his hilarity and dancing skills. I am the nosy housekeeper played by Mary Wickes. There is no resemblance in any way.
The kids asked what the housekeeper’s name was and I said, “Emma.”
Laylee said, “Emma Waverly.”
Me – She’s not married to the general. She’s just the housekeeper.
Laylee – Okaaayyy….
Later to Dan, I said, “Oh my word. They think housekeeper and wife/mom are interchangeable. I am like a housekeeper hired by God to clean up after them. And a spy.”
From Bob and Phil, Betty, Judy, and Emma the nosey housekeeper, Happy Halloween!
Aunti Meg says
It’s Emma Allen, at least according to imdb.
Yes, indeed. And she is so rad. I guess we have that much in common.
